Are there encoding issues with storing XML in a relational database? 
Anyone have any experience with doing this in a database neutral way? 

I believe there is Unicode/UTF support in popular databases, but I do not
know much about it.
Can you convert the various encoding schemes to UTF-8 for storage, and
convert them back on retrieval? Would such round-tripping require you to
store the name of the original encoding alongside the UTF version?

Any help is appreciated.
